The Giant Snail is a peaceable vegetarian with little interest in anything and almost no brain.
Few people would attack a Giant Snail. The Bretonnians hunt them during the winter, when the Snails hibernate in the forests around Mousillon. Hunting sleeping snails is an exacting sport, and one for which the famous Bretonnian Snail Hound is superbly adapted: it is said these large, indolent animals can catch the scent of a Giant Snail from up to a mile away, indicating their excitement by slowly wagging their tails and loping towards their prey. Apart from Bretonnians, who eat them, these creatures are largely left alone by other Humans, although their shells are sometimes used to make windows, lamp fittings, combs and other small decorative items.
